I am a professional oil painter specializing in portraits of people, horses and small animals. When I’m not painting the portrait or ‘genre’ subjects (paintings of people doing things), you’d find me painting ‘other’. ‘Other’ is of course any subject that suits my fancy, but much of it is ‘sporting art’: equestrian related (fox hunting, horse racing and polo), lots of hound dogs, plus animal and landscape pictures. My intention here is to expose my work to new audiences, and to share my thoughts on art and the making of it.
As I have been a student of eastern philosophy for the majority of my adult life (specifically Advaita Vedanta), I shall from time to time write on this subject as well; it’s all related. Please enjoy.
